Perception of Pictures
What is this Study about?
This study is designed to see how perception of pictures is affected by healthy aging and amnestic mild cognitive impairment. The study can be completed either in-person or online. The data gathered will be used for scientific papers and conference presentations. Participants will also be asked if they consent to having their de-identified data shared for the benefit of open science.
What Will Happen in This Study?
Participants will first complete some tests of language and memory. They will then view pictures of objects, and then will be asked some questions about the objects. The study takes about 2.0 to 2.5 hours to complete. Participants will be paid $12 an hour, either in cash if in person, or via an e-gift card.
